Classic rock supergroup The Nightflight Orchestra takes off again.
NIGHT FLIGHT TO PRATTELN
Classic rock supergroup The Nightflight Orchestra is taking off again. With their first four albums and extensive European tours, the Swedes have built a solid fan base over the past few years. On 29.05.2022 they will land in Pratteln with album number five and a real catchy tune to fill us with their fantastic AOR pearls.
It all started somewhere on one of those endless American highways. Björn Strid (vocals) and David Andersson (guitar) were touring the United States with their band Soilwork. That's when they had the idea to create a soundtrack to their trip. They quickly discovered their shared love for classic AOR, the perfect road trip sound. That's how the story took its course. After the tour, they started looking for suitable companions to record the soundtrack and travel the world with it. Soon the right musicians were found who wanted to share their vision. With bassist Sharlee D'Angelo (Arch Enemy, Spiritual Beggars and others), Richard Larsson (keyboards), Jonas Källsbäck (drums) and Sebastian Forslund (guitar, percussion) the Nachtflieger finally found the perfect crew.
Already the first two albums "Internal Affairs" (2012) and "Skyline Whispers" (2015) were highly praised by insiders. By signing with Nuclear Blast, the band managed to enter the next level - and they released "Amber Galactic" (2017), their most successful album to date. The record deservedly became Album of the Month in various European rock magazines, earned the band a nomination for a Swedish Grammy, and culminated in an intense and successful European tour in the fall/winter of 2017. A year later, the Scandinavian night fliers went one better with "Sometimes The World Ain't Enough." The album has it all -the catchy songs, the artistic ambition and the inimitable Swedish melancholy. And it took the band higher in the charts than ever before. Number 16 in Germany, 23 in Switzerland and 37 in Sweden were the new bests.
The music of The Night Flight Orchestra is mostly described as classic rock or AOR. According to Matthias Weckmann of the German Metal Hammer, "he band delivers everything you love about bands like Journey, Foreigner and Survivor." His colleague Frank Thiessies hears out "AOR with classic rock between disco bullets and hook swings". Björn Backes of Powermetal.de drew comparisons with British progressive rock of the '70s, citing Yes, Genesis, Kiss, Deep Purple and Rainbow as musical references. Boris Kaiser from Rock Hard added bands like Toto, Ghost, REO Speedwagon, Boston or Supertramp. Only the best of the scene are good enough as comparisons. And now the band is putting the finishing touches on album number five. We are curious to which spheres the next night flight will take the band.
